A round of Lombardy saw a horrific injury last Saturday when a road cyclist, Remco Evenepoel, 20, estimated to be the future superstar of the sport, fell off the bridge.
The Belgian drove down the steep and challenging descent of the classic race onto a stone bridge, collided with a railing and eventually flew over the railing. In the collision, Evenepoel's pelvis fractured and his other lung erupted.

The ferocious accident of a Belgian stable Deceuninck-QuickStep cyclist was recorded on videos of several eyewitnesses.
This week, the young man has updated his first coverage after a life-threatening quake.
Evenepoel released a video on Instagram on Thursday where he learns to walk with the help of elbows.
- Slightly different time trials today. The smallest steps forward, Evenepoel wrote.
On Tuesday, he released his first coverage after the accident. Even then, the 2018 Junior World Road Champion lay in a hospital bed.
- I have been transferred to a hospital in Belgium. I want to thank all the people who helped and supported me from the accident to this moment. I also want to thank all my fans who have sent me messages so much that I haven’t had time to respond to everyone, Evenepoel thanked with his video.
Despite his serious injury, the Belgian does not appear to have any doubt that he will return as a professional cyclist.
- My team and I think positively and look to the next season. We’re taking it easy now and moving slowly, but we’re doing everything we can to make me a better cyclist than I used to be, Evenepoel said.
The Evenepoel crash was already another serious accident for Deceuninck-QuickStep in a short time. In early August, the Dutch cyclist of the stable, Fabio Jakobsen, collided with his advertising fence at the end of the stage at a speed of 70 km / h.

Jakobsen was plunged into a coma after the accident and underwent facial surgery for several broken bones. It was later reported that Jakobsen has been raised from a coma and his well-being is good given the circumstances.
